Hope Cemetery in Penn Hills for 16 years. (1957-1973) At that time Harry Pahlman was President of the Board of the cemetery. Harry Pahlman's wife was Ida (Richey) Pahlman. This was always called the "Richey" Family Cemetery. "When this housing development was built the builder wanted to move the cemetery but Ida wouldn't allow it, as this was her family's cemetery. "Harry and Ida Richey Pahlman are buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery... they had no children. "Hope this info will be of some help to you. David McCall -- December 21, 2000." ==========================================================================Victoria Hospodar Valentine writes
I just happened across your listing of the Richey Family Burial ground in Penn Hills. I believe that these people are of my husbands family. My husbands great-grandfather was a child of Wm. M. and Lucinda STALEY RICHEY. Besides him, James, I have no listing of the other children. The dates for Wm. M and Lucinda are close to those that I have, but off by a year or so. My husband's grandmother was also Ida Richey, but not the one mentioned in the listing.
